Dom Cassian Folsom: "The Great Divorce: An Attempt to Diagnose the Root Cause of Our Liturgical Ills"


This past October we told our readers about a visit and talk given by Dom Cassian Folsom, OSB, to Wyoming Catholic College. In that post we reported on a lecture that he gave called, “The Great Divorce: An Attempt to Diagnose the Root Cause of Our Liturgical Ills.”

The lecture drew upon the work of Fr. Jonathan Robinson of the Toronto Oratory -- amongst others -- and argued that the root cause of defects in the liturgical reform, both shortly before and after the Council, was a false anthropology rooted in the Enlightenment which exaggerated rationality, particularly through verbal instruction, while neglecting the immense role played by the senses, the symbolic imagination, and memory, as well as the appetitive side of human nature.

We are pleased to report that this lecture is now available as a podcast off the website of the Monastero San Benedetto:
